ATJTHOE AND NATURALIST. How Hamilton Gibson Took Different Kinds of 'Work. Th» M.T«t*rl«» of the Flownrn—Mr. Glb- non't Krnmrk!il)I« Ohuru Illuntrttt- Inc thr rrniH-VVrllllZKllon of IOOPYHUIIIT. ifM.i Feu- of the Xcw York literary men iire more popular than Mr. \V. 1 Tamil- ton (iil»,on. ! call him a literary 111:111. although he is equally well knou-n ,i.s nil artist :ind :i naturalist, lie i* iruu-H liked hy the nu-inbors ol' :ill three of the piviiVssiims to \vhieh ho belong, iiud hi- is remarkal'lefoi'havinjr yahied tliHtim't ion in erich of thorn. It is now about three years since Jtr. Gibson invented :i system of sectional charts, illustrating what i.s called the cross-fertili/.ation of llowors by insects \vhieh :ivu attracted by their honey and which are made to eiirry the fertiliiiir.^r pollen from one l!o\ver to another. These eharts are arranged •with meehaiiieal devices so that they W. HAilll.TOS GII1SUX. show the bee or butterfly approaching the flower, show his method of alighting on or entering it, and show how he is covered with the pollen in one way or another.' They have created so nruch talk and have brought Mr. Gibson so many in vitations to pive the lectures in which they are used that it seemed desirable to ask him how he happened to invent them, and indeed how he was led to take up his studies of flowers and in sects in the first place. It should be remembered that he has written hall a dozen books on these and kindred subjects, all of which are illustrated by his own beautiful drawing's. Mr. Gibson said that when he was boy of ten years (one of a family oJ eig-ht children), it was concluded that he should be sent to a boarding school The school of Mr. F. W. Gunn at Wash ingtoti, a village in western Connect! cat, although small, had considerable fame at that time, and as a number od his boy friends went there—among- them a son of Henry Ward lieecher—it •was concluded that he should go there, too. The school family then consisted oi something like fifteen boys, and school was kept in an old farmhouse; but as the fame of the school spread, owing to the wonderful personality of Mr. Gunn, and his marvelous means oi dealing with boys as to their studios, and especially as to their morals, it became necessary to enlarge the original structure. This is the same school •which Dr. J. O. Holland made so famous in his novel, "Arthur Bonnie- castle." Gibson remained at that school for about six years. Something of the nature of the school may be inferred from the f»ct that when vacation time came several of the boys always preferred remaining there through the summer to going home. "Mr. Gunn," said Mr. Gibson, "was one of the most remarkable men I ever knew—more and more do I appreciate him as I grow older. He noticed early in my career a fondness for nature, and encouraged it. Under him I began .my study of botany, and finally becoming greatly interested in that study I carried it along myself, simultaneously becoming interested in entomology. With my fondness for botany MR. OIBSO.V'H SUM.MKU HOME AT WASHINGTON, COXK. and entomology my sketch book was soon filled with water color paintings of flowers, insects and the like. "After leaving school the affection I felt for both Mr. and Mrs. Gunu led me annually back to Washington, and their freqcent reunions brought back roost o£ tho boys also. It entirely supplanted my fondness for my old birth- place—Snndy Hook, some twenty miles south. Wo have still at Sandy Hook tho old homestead surrounded by eighty acres of land which we have rented now for twenty years tiack. One by one tho old alumni of the Gunn school came back to Washington, bought land and built houses— and, in fact, I built a house there myself last year." "Mr. Gibson, you found Washington • good field for botanical and entomological observation, did you not?" "That reminds me of a remark of Gilbert White: 'That place is most rich in material that is most observed,' or words to that effect. I have been over »nd over again amazed at tho richness" •which develops under careful scrutiny in spots of ground that at first night offer no invitation for observation, J don't suppose Washington is any richer than many another locality in Conneo- 1 timit. but than 1« cnouirh in » small plot of ground in Washington to keep me busy the rust of my life," "Well, Mr. Gibson, you art studies {Trow up with your study of ri!»iure--or was the art instinct something primary, so to speak'.'" "It, is impossible, in my recollection, to clilTort'iitiale my fondness for art and nature; J oatuiot remcmhor the time when they were not associated with nn\ I lii-pnn to draw piet.ures, in ii childish w;iv, many of which \\-ere very crmie, and, as a rule, they were of flowers, insects and things of that character, and were united in natural history subjects a;, fur bciek ;is my j eighth yetir." | "Your interest in literary w.ji'k ciimu I ill by w;iy of ilescrib'nifV toothers what yon Inui ulixiTviMl yourself 1 .'" "Tin- way I drifted into literary work was quite natural, and. in a seiv.e, was i imperative, in order tliat [ miirht train a. livelihood. Iu other words, ! had my sketch book and portfolio full oi drawings from nature. After having left i school I went into business, br.t my heart wns not in it -my ambition from a boy had heen to he an artist. My attention w;is not drawn to the art of j drawing on wood until f had noticed a | publication on the subject. Then it ] was that 1 determined to .draw on wood. I "Hi-in;,' a In-ffiuner, it was impossi- j Wo for me to illustrate—I could only I show 1113' specimens; but 1 had certain j facts reCfurUinj*' natural history which j I could illustrate, iiud in that way I gradually drifteil into writing sketches on natural history, and illustrating 1 them, meanwhile studying and endeavoring to improve myself in drawing-, until eventually [ became known, and my work appeared in various magazines. However, I never, at that | time considered my writing' 'literature;' it was simply a natural means Of finding- a market for my drawings. My work wa« conscientiously done—as well as I could do it, but I had as yet never had the remotest idea of becoming a writer. "1 drifted into writing proper at tho suggestion ol Mr. Henry M. Alden, then, as now, editor of' Harper's Monthly. I returned one summer from a vacation spent at Washington, and was describing 1 my school life to him—tellinu;him little episodes which had been reawakened by my visit to Mr. Gunn. Mr. Alden seemed interested, and at the close of my remarks said: 'I want you to write that for the magazine.' My conversation with Mm at that time finally led to an oxticlo called 'Snug Hamlet. That:cam6 out, fastened on separately. tr> fftou- the movement, which F did. This proved to be a revelation to myself, and the result was that 1 made several other sectioTinl char!,:- of !l,nvi".r.: r.u insects that smnc snmi:H".'-.:i.!">i!!, 'Live years llf^o. r!

There really seemed to be a new iieid for work and I a,i.'cgpted the. indications and conce.ntral.ed my tliou;!'ht,s upon the saini-." The appreciation of Mr. Gibson's charts was most lla: te'.'inK'. and while ! he h:id not the remotest idea at i.hat j t inn: of taking to llie lecture platform with the! 1 .!, t.he culls became so numerous, their fniiif having spread through people who !i:id heard tho lectures and seen the charts, a.nd invitations U) lec- l.Ui'e came crowdin.'r so thick upon him without solicitation 071 his part t.liat ^lr. iiihson's time has been tilled up pretty well since then, to the exclusion of almost all oilier work. .Mr. iiiiiso:i has been told by scien- tilic people that he had evolved an entirely new melii'id of te.a.chiii£ and ouffht l.o protect his charts—and this he has done both by copyrights and patents in .America, France.

One old farmer said to the lecturer in the provincial dialect; 'Mr. Gibson, do you mean to tell me thet thct's what thet man Darwin's boon talkin' 'baoiit?" "Yes," said Mr. Gibson, "that is one of the thing's he has been talking about." Then the farmer replied: "Wall. I never took no stock in Darwin before, but I think a mighty heap of Darwin now." Another native noted for the fondness lie had for his par- den said: "I vow, Mr. Gibson, I almost ojihamcd to Ifo into mv Harden THE ruocnsa OF CROSS FEBTILIZATIOW. [Drawn from his oharta by Mr. Gibson.] and, to my surprise and gratification, was .very well received, whereat Mr. Alden suggested lhat as that article was a summer one I should prepare a winter one, which I did—'The Winter Idyll.' Then ho asked mo to write some spring and summer articles. 'With these (our sketches I concluded to make up the volume, 'Pastoral Days,' which proved to bo a big 1 success." 'Now, Mr. Gibson, I have observed that you have lately developed a ue\v field in natural history, namely, tho description and illustration hy mechanical charts of the cross fertilization of lowers and kindred events in tho botanical world. ^Vo\^k^ you cure to say how you developed that idea?" 'Almost the first inspiration I pot toward the study of insects was from accidentally observing the birth of the moth; it was an inspiration' that will ast me a life time. I followed it up in connection with botany, and subsequently in my great interest in the works of Darn-in. The amount of material I gathered thus from books and from nature was considerable and luring rny summer sojourns I had 'requently been asked to give public talks' on nature generally. At last one summer I consented to (rive a course of lectures at the village of iVashington—mere informal 'talks,' which took place at my studio. These >rored acceptable, and at length I was obliged to flnd a larger hall. These ,alks, however, I have kept up every ,ummer since then, illustrating the same by rapid drawing on the blackboard. "When I came to touch upon the topic of inter-association and intercommunion of insects and flowers, especially the mechanism of flowers, ,heir movement, etc., I found I was handicapped, as many other scientists have been—in the difficulty of expressing motion by fixed Irawings and descriptions, It occurred o me to make a drawing of the', oirn blossom, with a tiltinff stamen, 1 again." Another one came to him with an expression of awe and amazement on his face, and said: "Mr. Gibson, is thet really so about thet daisy flower, or is it guff?" In other words these men were inspired with awe and reverence for the wonderful design and intention which lay beneath the forma of the flowers that they had known all their lives. The idea never entered their minds that the form of the flower, the color, etc., all have reference to a special insect taking the pollen from one flower to another to insure cross-fertilization. This is fulfilled among flowers in various ways, Mr. Gibson said. One flower claps the bee on the back and covers it with pollen as it leaves the flower to go to another one, in the stigma of which other one the bee deposits the pollen and so on. In other flowers the bee or insect is imprisoned and cannot escape until the pollen of the flower shall have been shed upon the bee's body. When let out the bee takes the pollen and deposits it in another flower and so it goes. These devices are simply wonderful and amazing. In the case of the yucca tho moth deliberately takes tho pollen and inserts it in the stigma. The moth then deposits its eggs at the base of tho stigma, which it only can fertilize. In the south these flowers arc numerous, each pod bearing little holes which show tho inside containing the mature larva. The yucca is found as far north as New Haven, Conn., and perhaps a little further on, and, being a perennial plant, comes up year after year without re- sowing of seed, but in Washington Mr. Gibson 1 said ho had never seen a seed pod upon the yucca, because the moth which fertilized the flower has not tot up as far north as that degree of lati- tU "These charts," Mr. Gibson said, "represent flowers on a huge scale, and not only flowers but insects, «« «*« in the light of the insects taking the pollen from the flowers and depositing the aam« ia the .Other flower* OM: at hiinil in n e \v:is nul. lifter bcnvs, ;ind was lotii.lly IMIIIJ'P.HK.!, I U; hurried to the nearest fiiniihoiiM 1 , gave; tlu; I'.hinii ;nul. si:i/.: n,^ r an old ilrn^'o'jli- s:ibo!'.

His idea, was to despatcli the savage little animal, but by the lime it had received several cuts from the saber it began to cry in :i pec'uliar manner, a.nd the next moment there was a crash of bushes and twigs and the old she-bear rushed upon Harrison. The man turned upon' his new foe and wielded his trusty weapon with such energy and success that in a. short time he deprived her of one of her forcpnws by a lucky stroke, andatiast completely disabled her by a cut across the neck, which divided the tendons and severed the spinal vertebra. Then he despatched the cub. While 'this had been going on, Mr. Burke had been having a perilous encounter with the old male bear. He discharged his gun, merely wounding the briiU 1 , and the next instant bruin sprang at him. The beast was met with a blow from the butt-end of tho fowling-piece. At the first stroke the stock flew in pieces, and the next moment, u. dexterous blow of the bear's paw sent the heavy barrel twenty feet into the underbrush. Mr. liurlee then retreated a few feet and placed his back against a large hemlock tree, followed closely by the bear; but, being acquainted with the nature of the animal and his mode of attack, lie drew a large hunting-knife from his belt, and coolly awaited the onset.' The maddened brute approached, growling and gnashing its, teeth, and with a sort of spring encircled both the body of the hunter and the trunk of the tree in his grip. The next instant the flashing knife-blade entered his heart, and the combat was soon over. Two old bears and a cub— all extremely fat — wero the result of this dangerous adventure. The largest of them weighed two hundred and fifty pounds. Mr. Burke was not injured, but Mr, Harrison was torn severely and had three ribs broken.— Youth's Companion.

TAXES IN ITALY. MAKING CRIMINALS. The Moral Effect of Prliou Lift Upon Its Innmtei. If the leading object of incarceration were punishment—that Is, injury to the individual—most of our prisons are admirably adapted to their end. For the worst punishment that can bo inflicted upon a parson is to confirm him in evil wayi, and to make him worse than he is. In doing 1 this society takes the place of the ingenious Satan. Our machinery which catches hold of an offender and draws him into the circuit of its education is calculated to confirm him in his tendencies, and make him a professional criminal. It is rare that tlie jail and penitentiary influences are such as to improve him in any way, except occasionally in his physical condition. The advantage to a, criminal of connnement is that abstinence and a regular life ma3 r improve his health; but better moral habits will not bo formed in him unless the authority to which he is subjected is concerned in ihe effort to educate him into a. better ife. It does not need any argument ;o show that if the men put in charge of him are selected not for their fitness '.or their difficult duties, but are chosen 3.y the political machiue oil account of their service to the machine, the prisons will be run without intelligent reference to the reformation of the criminals. Sometimes our prisons are lonestly managed and sometimes ,hey are corruptly managed by the rolitieians, but never when politics nterferes are they conducted • either with regard to economy for the tax-payers or in the moral interests of theeon- emned. So that there has never been he least hope for prison reform, nor ?ill there ever be until the prisons are taken out of politics." Public opinion _aa compeled the state to build better ails, to pay more attention to sanitary measures and to conduct them more umnnely, but the manufacture of eon- rmed criminals goes on. in the old way, and only here and there is any ffort made for the permanent change i their habits. That change will not ome so long as the prisons are merely jlaoes of confinement, and for giving ituations to political workers.—Charles )udley Warner, in Harper's Magazine. Aniwered.

No foreigner who ha not traveled through the peninsula can conceive the depths of misery that an connoted there by that hated won taxes. Thousands of little household struf.'p'ling bravely for mere existenci in the poorer districts, especially ii Sicily and Calabria, are annually swcp away into space for the non-puymen of such paltry sums us half a crown, : shilling, ninepence half-penny! These are the miserable outcasts who turn organ-grinders in London, form labor ers and galley slaves in lirazil and tar pets for French revolvers in Aigues Mortes. Tho unsettled state of Sicily, where life and property are no lonper secure is at once an eloquent testimony to th intolerable sufferings of the people and an emphatic condemnation of tho rapaciousuess of the government. Nor is it in Sicily only that the sinister effects of this wanton slaughter of the hen that laid the golden egg's are noticeable. In most country districts oi the peninsula one hears the same sad story of ravenous government harpies, snatching the scanty food from the shrunken hands of the hungry laborers who famish in filth and perish in despair.

Ue was frequently called upon to repeat his answers, which were evidently made under protest, and between these constant requests and the long words with which the air of the courtroom seemed to Patrick to be filled, -his anjfer rose and his confusion steadily increased, "Don't prevaricate," said 'the judge at last, as Patrick returned a surprisingly incoherent answer to a question addressed to him.
